Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

    A new title from another ARRSER (remember "Stumpy") - this time by Iain Reid - ex Scots Guards, Kent Constabulary and some other ploddy lots - and finally into training the Iraqi police on behalf of MoD, and security duties in Afghanistan.
    A really good service autobiography of someone who can say "I've been there, and I've done that."
    Bloody well written and with lots of lovely pix for gun, vehicle and aircraft buffs as well as a few of the man himself.
    A few sad bits, many funny bits, and one or two really hilarious bits.
    Reviewer wanted please.
    Price not yet sorted but around the £25.00 mark as a hardback.
    Will be published in the new year as soon as we can get the printers out of their pits and back to their keyboards.

    How about a copy for review on ARRSE and Rum Ration?

    Of course A-Y - PM me please with email address for a copy

    It will have to be electronic as we haven't even type set it yet - not that that will take too long.

    You can reserve a copy now - email sales@mlrsbooks.co.uk

    I enjoyed every word and I am quite hard boiled when it comes to other people's writing!
     
  5. Having sampled ACAB's literary style on here (IRA bombing) then this will be going on the 'must buy' list.

    Email me asap with a reservation - we are only printing a limited run for the first imprint - too dodgy these days to overprint.
     
  7. If this is ACAB then count me in.

    I have seen a pre publication proof and he lead an interesting life (until he joined ARRSE! :) ). It is worth a punt and just to put your minds at rest BounceBanana/KnockKnee does not feature!

    Thanks A-Y - the usual competent and valuable comments!
    Get your pre-orders in. There will be one hardback run and then we go paperback.
     
  12. Well done ACAB and David I'll buy a copy.
    I'd love to write a book but I'd probably get struck off.

  13. Hmmnn, good point. Lets see how many days after publication it takes before I get an early morning knock (At least I hope they knock!)
